What you can try is to unplug tool and spray something like WD-40 on the collar mechanism and usually it is simpler for this to remove the pivot shoe and turn the collar and release until you can get full rotation and pull the blade out. There might be some dirt in the release mechanism not allowing the blad/collar to release. This is about the only way without having to remove the assembly. Let me know if you need more assistance

What causes my 13.5 hp craftsman model #917270412 engine to die when i release the clutch


My question would be what caused the belt to break. Have you checked under the mower deck to make sure the blades turn freely? Could be that something is jamming them and causing the motor to die. Or even a blade that hit something hard might be bent against the top of mower deck.

Saw blade jammed - cannot remove


Unplug from power. Spray blade locking mechanism with wd40 or similar lube. 1. If you have a quik release, work the release with a pair of channel locks while wriggling the blade. If not removed, you can remove the footplate from the saw and drive the pin out that holds the quik release in place, paying attention to how the parts reassemble. 2. If you have a set screw retainer, totally remove the retainer.

Blade will not release on sawsall


ok first this is in the chainsaw category and since they don't make one,, I'll assume you mean a sawzall, if you have the quick release ( which is a joke and is a bad part ) your going to have to breal off the blade at the section that it reduces ( where it goes into the holder) unscrew the ringnut that releases the blade, and take it all apart. be careful there is a ballbearing sitting inside there that will roll right out and naturally get lost in the mix. once apart you can remove the last of the blade. Now if your really lucky, you can clean it,, lightly oil this piece , and reassemble it,, and it will work, I have 3 and have replaced that part on all 3 of them,, Now if its an older model that still has the set screw hold down,, Just unscrew the setscrews and remove the blade, ( some have 2 some just one set screw depending on the model

How to remove the blade on a tiger saw quick-change,model#737?


At the base of the blade where it attaches in the saw you will see a round in shape with ridges fixture. Turn it so the slot is in line with the blade. Then you will be able to remove the blade. If the fixture does not turn, move the blade up and down while you turn the fixture.

Change blade


depending on how new the saw is there are only 2 ways to change out the blade. the older saws have a allen head screw that you must loosen or remove to take te blade off. this screw is located on the shaft at the top of the blade. shed some light on it and look for a slot above the guide.the screw will be either on the right side or the left side. Newer models will have a quick release on one side or the other,it will look like a little lever,you just flip it out with your thumb the old blade drops out then you install the new blade flip it back and your back in business.

I have a bosch jigsaw I purchased at auction.I can't figure out how to change the blade


There are two types of "quick release" mechanisms on the new Bosch jigsaws, the twist-top handle found on 1587 models, and the lower-lever found on the 1590's. 
The "twist-top" is the black cap on the 1587 at the front of the saw. You must first put the orbiting control ( on the side of the saw ) to position number III. This releases pressure on the blade. Then you lift the black cap, rotate three or more turns counter-clockwise ( as seen from the top ) to release the locking mechanism. If the saw blade is cool, you can carefully remove it with a single one-quarter turn using your fingers. If the blade is still hot from sawing, use a pair of pliers, but be gentle. Hot blades can bend easily and jam.
The 1590 models are quite a bit easier. You still want to put the orbit control to position III to release pressure. But the quick-release is a simple flick of the black switch on the front face of the saw. 
I still have my 30 year old Bosch with the screw-in blade holder. It still works and the saw still runs smooth as a sewing machine. If you are doing a lot of production work where you need to change blades frequently, the Bosch 1590 is the clear choice for quality and value. In thirty years of using Bosch tools, I have only had to do normal maintenance and had only one minor failure, which was the blade changing mechanism on the 1587 model. I broke it by tightening too far. SO, if you have a 1587 model, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN. As it is, this non-warrantee repair only cost $16 bucks and took two days.
It should go without saying, but just to be safe I'll say it anyway... OBVIOUSLY, you should UNPLUG the tool when you are changing blades. Good luck!
